Dear Friends, Supporters and Newcomers to the Rudolf Steiner Institute, 

We, at the Rudolf Steiner Institute, are envisioning and planning future offerings and venues. While there will be no RSI Summer Session in 2011, we continue to work to develop conducive and viable ways to conduct RSI’s mission as the cultural crossroads for social action and spiritual inquiry that it has been for nearly four decades. We invite all friends of RSI to watch this website for emerging details. Please subscribe to our email notices by clicking on SIGN UP FOR MAILING on this page. Write to RSI at [email protected]
